The service was great, rooms very nice and clean. Having a walk out balcony overlooking the lake was fantastic. The food was very good and the receptionist at the front Jen, was super nice. I'm looking forward to staying here in the future.

terryconard51, thank you so much for your very comprehensive, 5 star review of our hotel and staff. Winter is right around the corner and we have a great place to visit after we get some snow on the ground. Detroit Mountain offers a brand new downhill and cross country ski facility and there are miles and miles of snowmobile trails...

At the front desk, Nicole took care of us with a smile. We checked into a room that had only a mediocre view - no lake. Back to the desk I asked for a lake view room, and Nicole made it happen in a minute. The sunset was beautiful and so was our room. Thanks, Nicole

Stayed at this hotel multiple times and it does not disappoint. The experience is always good, but nothing over the top. Rooms have always been clean and never had an issue with temperature etc. in the room. There are not enough outlets in the rooms close to the beds, that is annoying. The thing that would make this place better...

We attended a three day meeting at the hotel. The sleeping rooms were adequate, nothing to commend them as more than average. The facilities, overall, were very good, providing a nice pool area, good meeting rooms, a very nice beach on the lake, and a decent restaurant and bar. Everything is convenient. Service was uniformly good and pleasant, excepting the...
